Media Sign Pro Releases Latest Version of Digital Signage Software for the Mac

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) December 14, 2010

Media Sign Pro has announced that today they will be releasing version 3.2 of their Mac based digital signage software. This version will include a variety of updates including a fully-integrated system scheduler, higher zone limits, RSS feed optimizations, and much more.

“We have been working very closely with our clients to identify what features were needed to solidify Media Sign Pro as the premier stand-alone Mac based digital signage software solution in the market,” said Chris Lee, President and Co-Founder of Media Sign Pro. “With a truly integrated system scheduler, increased zone limits, a variety of code optimizations across the board, and many other new features, we believe that our clients will be very pleased with our new release.”

The highlight of the update is the automated system scheduler that allows users to schedule shut downs and startups of their Mac at scheduled times along with the auto-launch of their digital signage project. Users can have their Macs start up at the beginning of the day, launch their digital signage project, and then shutdown at the end of the day without the need of any user interaction.

The new release will be available to all clients free of charge, even those who are still using versions 1 or 2 and have not had the opportunity to purchase an upgrade to version 3.

“The system scheduler is a critical component that all of our users should have the privilege of using. We want Media Sign Pro to be a hassle-free solution for all our clients, that is why we are making this specific release free of charge to all current Media Sign Pro users,” states Chris Lee. “It is our way of saying thank you for your commitment to our company and software.”

The new version also allows the RSS Ticker and RSS Bulletin Zones to auto-update every minute rather than every 15 minutes. This feature became a critical request from users who needed their Twitter feeds to update immediately after making a new tweet. Users can now tweet from their smart phone and see their custom messaging appear on the sign within a minute.

Limits for Video, Image, and Text Zones have also been increased. Users can now have two separate video playlists displayed simultaneously, allowing higher flexibility for designers. Users can also play audio files supported by QuickTime within one Video Zone while having a muted video playing in another zone.

New features and optimizations in Media Sign Pro 3.2 include:


    Fully-automated system scheduler allowing users to schedule their Macs to shut down and startup at specific times, along with having Media Sign Pro auto-launch and auto-play a specific project.
    A more streamlined and easier to use project scheduler that allows users to have different projects played at different times of the day, week, or month.
    Video Zone limit has been increased from one to two allowing two videos to be played simultaneously within one project.
    Ability to mute audio for individual files in a Video Zone playlist.
    Image Zone limit has been increased from three to five.
    Text Zone limit has been increased from three to five.
    RSS Ticker Zone allows character omission for easier Twitter feed integration.
    RSS Ticker and RSS Bulletin Zones now auto-update every minute rather than every 15 minutes.
    Stability improvements allowing you to save larger project files.
    Many minor bug fixes that improve the overall stability of the application.

The company states that they are by no means done with product development in the near term. Their next software release, expected within the first quarter of 2011, will include an advanced social networking feature that brings interactivity to digital signs.

About Media Sign Pro

Media Sign Pro (http://www.mediasignpro.com) is based in Irvine, California. The company provides business solutions to all markets including businesses, educational institutions, government, healthcare, hospitality, real estate, restaurants, retail, and worship. Formerly known as NexGen DS, Media Sign Pro launched its first digital signage solution in 2008. The software was highly acclaimed for its ease of use, affordability, and Mac exclusivity.

Survivor Thanks U.S. Coast Guard for His Rescue

Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) May 20, 2013

On April 6th, the four-man crew with Ocean Adventure Rowing and Education (O.A.R Northwest) attempting a Trans-Atlantic Expedition from Dakar to Miami was derailed after their row boat the “James Robert Hanssen” capsized about 400 miles north of Puerto Rico.

Jordan Hanssen, Adam Kreek, Marcus Pukonen and Patrick Flemming the four rowers were all well equipped with ACR ResQLink Personal Locator Beacons which they promptly activated to facilitate their own rescue. Coast Guard Sector San Juan received their 406 MHz distress message at 6:30 a.m. on Saturday morning. Coast Guard watch-stands immediately coordinated the launch of a Coast Guard HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircraft from Air Station Miami and a C-130 Hercules aircraft from Air Station Clearwater, Florida to search for the distressed vessel and possible survivors.

The crew of the HC-144 out of Miami arrived on scene at approximately 11 a.m., Saturday and located all four men safely on board the life raft and they dropped food rations for the boaters as well as a VHF marine radio to establish communications. The C-130 aircraft out of Clearwater later arrived on scene and the crew also dropped a second load of rations and a VHF marine radio, which the boaters used to confirm they were all safe. The C-130 aircraft crew maintained watch over the boaters until an AMVER participating vessel, the Heijin, safely recovered all four survivors from the life raft shortly before sunset when they were transported to Puerto Rico.

“Jordan and his crew exemplify everything we try to educate outdoor enthusiasts on; planning for the best, but preparing for the worst. Mother Nature can be cruel and unpredictable, but they had a safety plan, they practiced the plan and as a result they minimized the risk to the USCG crews and facilitated their own rescue,” said Mikele D’Arcangelo, Marketing Director of ACR Electronics.

Survivor Jordan Hanssen on behalf of his crew and sponsors ventured on a Thank You Tour throughout Florida in appreciation of everyone that played a part in the rescue. Jordan started his Thank You Tour at Coast Guard Air Station Miami on May 1st, followed by a visit to the manufacturer of the rescue beacons, ACR Electronics, Inc., which the crew used to notify the Coast Guard of their distress. Finally Jordan’s tour ended at the Coast Guard station in Clearwater, Florida where he again thanked the crew of the C-130.







StrandVision Helps Weastec Communicate To Associates

Hillsboro, OH (Vocus/PRWEB) February 02, 2011

StrandVision LLC today announced that Weastec, Inc – a division of Toyo Denso Co. Ltd. has deployed StrandVision Digital Signage through their intranet at its facility in Hillsboro, Ohio, as well as a satellite sales office in Dublin, Ohio. In addition to the operational, benefits and performance information that management posts several times per day, the StrandVision system automatically updates local weather and news, as well as an automotive industry news feed provided by StrandVision. The system also communicates emergency alerts if needed.

The installation consists of a 55” high definition LCD television display that is strategically mounted over the vending machines. This, in combination with the same content running on the company’s intranet, allows the entire organization to see up to the minute news of the world-class operation.

The system, administered by the Weastec I.T. department, replaces a time consuming process where topics were laboriously typed, copied, cut and placed into bulletin boards and acrylic table tent holders. Various associates have been given the authority to update the signage. For example, the HR associates work with the recreation, communication and safety committees to have them more directly involved with content updates. “In reviewing several company-wide employee surveys we noticed that communication always bubbled up to the top of what people wanted,” said David Fauber, Senior Manager Information Systems. “StrandVision digital signage helps us effectively communicate with our associates and it demonstrates Weastec’s commitment to the staff. It fit perfectly with our world class initiative that was both cost effective and the most efficient tool available”.
